Look Ahead America, a 501(c)(3) founded by thirty-five former Trump campaign staffers, announces that GOTV operations are underway in Virginia targeting disaffected, patriotic voters.
This effort is a counter the millions being spent by George Soros-backed progressive organizations.
“Using psychometrics developed in partnership with L2, we’ve identified a universe of patriotic Americans who have not voted in general elections since 2009 but have been registered for at least that long,” said Matt Braynard, the organization’s executive director. “These are citizens who are routinely ignored by establishment organizations that unwilling to do the hard work of reaching out to them and even more reluctant to address their concerns on issues like immigration, sanctuary cities, refugees, trade, and economics.”
Through volunteer phone and door-to-door dialogue, social media targeting, and direct mail, we will engage these patriotic Americans with voter education and assistance with voting.
“We bring a new approach to an old problem, combining latest technologies with traditional tactics to reach this demographic. With a custom mix of digital and traditional outreach, we see an opportunity here to reach this audience in a cost-effective way,” said Witold Chrabaszcz, the organization’s strategy director. “Registration and GOTV can be expensive; we are working with L2 and noted political field research academics to test and tune our program efficacy.”
The turnout-effort is being done in co-operation with noted political scientist Professor Donald P. Green of Columbia University to test the efficacy of various contact methods on an exceptionally low-propensity voter universe.
Additionally, Look Ahead America will be deploying a small army of poll watchers on Election Day. As non-profit, state-sanctioned election observers, they will help ensure ballot box integrity.
“The value of this operation goes beyond just the Virginia election,” said Braynard. “We will carry forward what we learn here about what works and what doesn’t to other states in 2018 and beyond.”
Look Ahead America is currently seeking volunteers who are interested in going door-to-door, making calls from home, or serving as poll monitors on Election Day, Tuesday, November 7. Those interested my signup here: http://www.lookaheadamerica.org/vavolunteer.
